Thank you for taking part

The South West AHSN is keen to hear where you think further focus is required across health and care to support work to tackle gaps in health equity, including in the area of young people's mental health. 

We recognise health equity can mean different things to different people. At the South West AHSN equity in health is the absence of systematic disparities in:

· Accessing care, for example the availability of treatments

· Quality of Care, for example levels of patient satisfaction

· Opportunities for a healthy life, for example smoking rates

· Individuals feeling empowered to manage their own health.


Health equity is experienced differently by different groups, factors to consider are:

· Socio-economic factors, for example unemployment

· Protected characteristics, for example age, ethnicity, religion

· Geography, for example rural and urban settings

· Socially excluded groups, for example people experiencing homelessness

Hearing from young people, families and those that work with them in the health and care sector will be vital to us designing a programme that has impact for young people, parents, communities and practitioners.
